Here's a strange question, we just came back from Vegas and had our minds blown by Raku (Thanks to all the Hounds that pointed us in that direction, it was awesome!) Now, we're on our way to Kyoto, Osaka and Tokyo over Christmas/New Years and are looking for a similarly unique take on Izakaya cuisine in the motherland. Anyone who has any information, it's greatly appreciated. And anyone who's lucky enough to live in/be visiting Vegas, do yourself a favor and get thee to Raku!!!
